SA 54 Sporter Barreled Action help



Log in to see fewer ads
I picked up this barreled action at Tulsa, can I get some help identifying what it Is? Looks like it is set up with 3 action screws, a 5mm in front and back with a 6mm in the middle. I don't see a date stamp on it or a model other than 54 Sporter.

It was a complete mess when I got it, had looked like it was all scratched and covered in gunk but everything cleaned up. Wasn't scratched but had something that had stringed on it and hard kind of like glue. The trigger easily adjusts down below a pound super clean and crisp. I'm not really worried about sights as I plan on shooting it scoped. I would love to see a picture of one to know what stock it would have had as well as learning the model number. I do a have a Walnut blank roughed out for it but not correct for the gun, it is for this action though.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

It is what you say it is: A Savage Anschutz Model 54 sporter. No model number was used at that time, but the Euro non Savage version would be considered a 1422. Probably circa 1970. Only one style of stock at that time-a Monte Carlo, which looks very much like the current 1710 DKL model.
Finding a trigger guard may be problematic. The missing rear sight will be a Lyman.

Wow that did clean up great. From what you said it looked like when you first saw it. I canít believe the guy selling didnít try to wipe the gunk off to begin with. Good luck on the hunt for the rest of it.

I have it about where I want it to sit in this stock. Have to head to the VA though so a little later. It really did clean up nice but like Camster said the trigger guard may be the difficult part. I have it in my head so may have to go to my uncle's and make one.

By my records, your SA 54 would have been produced 1974/75 time frame.
Check eBay for the TG. Rear sight should by a Lyman 16C.

Yep, a tg is far easier to figure out, if the action isn't going into a factory sporter stock.

Can anyone tell me what size the middle action screw Is? I know it's a 6mm but not sure of the pitch.

Thank you in advance

Champions Choice sells a trigger guard for a model 54. I bought one from them in the past for a model 1712 barreled action. Most likely this is not the exact guard that came with your action. It is made to use the two 5mm screws. If you decide to use this trigger guard you could leave out the center screw, or modify the guard to accept the center screw. Also, if you decide to use this guard, I can measure the hole spacing on mine to make sure it will align with your action.

Rhanks, thanks for the offer on checking the trigger guard. I was gone for a while on vacation and working on a few other projects so just started working on the Anschutz again. I have the stock about how I want it so will start working on a trigger guard for it this week. I will make a trigger guard so no need to measure yours. I did modify some extra mags I made for my Cooper and they work perfect. I built nice steel bottom metal for the mags so it should look nice.

Thanks guys but with going to a stock I have built for the rifle I don't think the factory trigger guards are going to work for me. I will need to build one to fit it..

A 1422 of that vintage came with the long one piece metal floorplate, a trigger cover plate, and a separate trigger guard.

The 1700 came in two versions; the first had a one piece floor plate and an elongated trigger guard mounted on it that could still accomodate the DST. The second version had a short floorplate and the trigger guard itself had the rest of the floor plate on it.

Early 1700 long cover plate

Late 1700
